Earth Conservancy received an enormous boost to its Bliss Bank reclamation project.  On April 6, Governor Tom Wolf announced EC would receive one of 12 grants supporting cleanup and revitalization of abandoned mineland sites in Pennsylvania.  EC’s $2.5 million award will continue reclamation of the legacy site, including reconstruction of Espy Run, and add in infrastructure and utility connections. Funding from EC, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development will also underwrite different aspects of the overall project. Our deep thanks to Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for their ongoing support of and commitment to EC’s work.
